Magic Quadrant for Multichannel Campaign Management, 2008
Indianapolis, IN (Vocus) May 1, 2008
Aprimo, Inc., a global provider of software for Enterprise Marketing Management (EMM), today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Challengers Quadrant in the “Magic Quadrant for Multichannel Campaign Management, 2008” report*.
Aprimo Enterprise Campaign Management (ECM) provides end to end, best of breed capabilities to manage multi-channel marketing initiatives. Designed as a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), this web-based application addresses the needs of the business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C) marketers. Aprimo offers this capability directly and in partnership with leading Marketing Service Providers.
“We are strongly committed to helping our customers realize the full potential of multi-channel campaign management," said Bill Godfrey, CEO of Aprimo. "We have strategically invested in our ECM solutions from both a development and partnership standpoint. Our customers are especially pleased with our ease of use and how seamless our campaign management functionality is integrated with the other applications within our Aprimo Enterprise platform. As multi-channel marketing evolves, the need for integration across electronic, direct, and mass marketing will grow more critical.”
"Our customer base continues to expand in the ECM arena,” said Michael Emerson, Aprimo CMO. “Our ECM product eliminates the need for our customers to compromise between the deep functionality of a point solution and the breadth of an Enterprise Marketing Management (EMM) suite. We now deliver advanced functionality such as contact optimization, offer management, dialogue management, and marketing analytics as well as integration with the rest of the marketing process.”
Gartner’s Multichannel Campaign Management Magic Quadrant defines "Challengers" as companies “that see continued investments in campaign management solutions as complementary offerings to business applications that are their core competency. Challengers have a developing understanding of the campaign management market and basic campaign management functionality. They see campaign management as an opportunity to increase revenue and retention in their installed bases, and they concentrate on established clients' needs for campaign management functionality and strategic direction, rather than on setting a visionary pace with potential requirements.“
